Lamont McClure and the Department of Parks & Recreation announce that the County of Northampton is seeking public comment on the draft of the Minsi Lake Corridor Greenway and Stewardship Plan.

A climate change impact analysis lists the threats and vulnerabilities to the environmentally sensitive landscape within the Minsi Lake Corridor.
